  1. Multiple linear regression models adjusted for intervention group (0 = control group; 1 = Intervention group); age (years), sex (0 = men; 1 = women); Social Class (dummy variables, 0 = reference); 4 Primary Care Centers (dummy variables, 0 = reference), smoking (0 = no; 1 = yes); BMI (kg/m2), hypertension (0 = no; 1 = yes); type 2 diabetes (0 = no; 1 = yes); dyslipidemia (0 = no, 1 = yes), depression (0 = no; 1 = yes); anxiety (0 = no; 1 = yes); osteoporosis (0 = no; 1 = yes); and the dependent variable of each model at baseline. Only significant variables are shown
